Former Kansas State wide receiver Jaquay Lane was arrested Wednesday afternoon on a probation violation.

Acting on a warrant from the Manhattan Municipal court, the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office arrested Lane at 2:26 p.m. Wednesday. The warrant’s execution stemmed from an inability to locate Lane. There was a motion to revoke his probation, but it never was served because authorities couldn’t find him, which led to his eventual arrest Wednesday.

The probation came after Lane was involved in an incident on or around Oct. 15, 2018. According to documents, Lane was charged with criminal depravation of property.

Lane started his career at K-State last year before transferring to Butler Community College. He never appeared on the stat sheet in his lone season with the Wildcats last fall despite arriving in Manhattan after a decorated high school career at Georgia prep powerhouse Grayson.

Lane was a multi-sport star for the Rams, competing for the football, basketball and track and field teams. He was part of 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams that set school records in their respective events. And on the football field, he helped Grayson win the Class 7A state title — the state’s largest classification — as a junior in 2016. The following year, he earned all-region honors after totaling 380 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.

Lane, a three-star recruit in the Wildcats’ 2018 class, was one of the most highly touted pass-catchers the team signed in the past decade.

Per 247Sports, his Composite score of 0.8410 is the fifth highest among receivers the Wildcats signed in the last 10 years, trailing Byron Pringle (0.8576), Corey Sutton, (0.8529), EJ Turner (0.8526) and Tyler Lockett (0.8497) and putting him just ahead of fellow Georgia Isaiah Zuber (0.8406)
